I have previously (See my blog entry of February 16th 2017, … ‘A Sign Too Far’ ) dealt with the modern day scourge which the multitude of signs and advertisements are to the pedestrian and to side-walks and pavements. At that time I used my own photograph which I use again below to illustrate this different take on the same subject . . .
A SIGN TOO FAR . . . TAKE 2
So often have I been attacked by signs Throughout the day Plethora Of signals Face me as I walk Innocuous one by one But fearsome in phalanx Threatening my advance Discouraging my progress Terrorising travel Note to myself – Beware Be wary
A sign Is a sign Is a sign I need to tell you that I need to let you know To say it loud and clear Please notice me Notice my notice If I say it often enough You are bound to notice Allow me to grab Your attention And your money Let me tell you about myself I’m not shy Passer by I’ll tell you why Just shout it out And cry To the sky Saying by the by Please notice me Please don’t go You need to know I’ve much to say In every way All through the day
Too much Too far I say Just clear the way And let me pass Your sinister intent Not heaven sent You need me more Than I need you So please take notice I refuse To take notice Of your notice.
